How to Make a Day of the Dead Headband

Hey there! Tonya Coleman from Soiree Event Design here and I am happy to be back again this year to share another tutorial as part of the 13 Days of Handmade Halloween with so many other talented party people! This tutorial was inspired by my daughter, Faith who is an avid DIY'er! She makes things ALL THE TIME and one of her signature crafts is her custom headbands. So, I asked her to teach me how to make a Day of Dead Headband that I could wear this year for Halloween with my super cool Day of the Dead mask. Now all of you can find out how too!

If you like her tutorial, you can find her over on her own YouTube channel where she teaches LOTS of really cool DIY projects! Click here to see this entire tutorial on YouTube!

Let's get crafting! First we started with a trip to Michaels to get all of the supplies we needed that included: - Headband (wide band) - Acrylic paint (various colors) - 3 bunches of small white flowers - Plastic spiders - Paintbrush - Hot glue gun

Now that we have all of our supplies, we are ready to get started!

Step 1: Remove the flower heads from the stems 

Step 2: Hot glue the flowers all along the top of the headband

Step 3: Paint each flower a different color Don't paint the entire flower, you want to get a splatter effect by using a wide paintbrush and pushing down on to the center of each flower with the paintbrush. 

Step 4: Add a plastic spider 

That's it! Super easy and cute! Perfect for my Halloween outfit! We also created a Day of the Dead wreath to match this for my front door.

Cheers! Tonya
